Mrs. Dedrick from Chula Vista CA is requesting Art Supplies through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.
Help me give my students the art supplies they need to be creative and express themselves.
Our school district in San Diego County is committed to providing the visual and performing arts to our students. Our elementary school offers visual arts, music, and PE/Dance clubs during the week and after school 4 days a week. I am one of three visual and performing arts teachers at our school and I teach visual arts. Our school is located in a low socio economic area and about 80% of the students at our school receive free or reduced price meals.
Over 500 students at our school look forward to participating in visual arts, music, and PE/Dance clubs during the school day and in our after school VAPA clubs!
The cost of art materials can be quite expensive. I hope that DonorsChoose.org can help with the art materials that our art program needs.
Students at our school will use these art supplies and benefit from them as they explore and create beautiful art projects. The learning goals for my students include applying creative and critical thinking skills to artistic expression and creating art using a variety of tools, materials, and processes safely. With the Reeves oil pastels, students will work on nature sketches of animals and plants, landscapes, and still lifes. With the watercolor palettes we have at school and the watercolor paper requested in this project, students will design unique koi fish and other watercolor projects. With the ceramics tools, students will learn beginning ceramics skills to create fish and animals. All of these lessons support student creativity and critical thinking skills. My visual arts lessons also integrate NGSS (national science standards) and the National Common Core Visual Arts Standards.
With the help of donors, like yourselves, students at our school will have more opportunities to think, create, discover their personal interests in art and use a variety of art materials.
Our school's budget for art supplies is limited. Thank you for taking the time to make a difference in our community. The students, staff, and families appreciate your help.
